Synopsis

Paul Hamy stars in this drama from Portuguese film-maker Jo¦o Pedro Rodrigues. Ornithologist Fernando (Hamy) is travelling through remote, northern Portugal in search of black storks when his kayak capsizes and breaks in rapids and he is washed ashore where he is found unconscious by Chinese Catholic pilgrims Fei (Han Wen) and Ling (Chan Suan). The pair take him into the nearby forest and tie him up but after escaping Fernando discovers a strange ritual site and begins a journey in which he experiences events similar to those of Saint Anthony of Padua.
